I'm a very driven person (I run an aviation software company) but I don't take myself too seriously and really enjoy laughing and taking time to see the humor and irony in things.
To me, a sharp wit and a great sense of humor are the keys to staying sane and enjoying life. I like to think these attributes apply to me and I look for them in others. Similarly, I very much believe that exercise and good eating are essential so I run and bike (combined about 3-5 times a week) and buy organic food if at all possible. I even like yogurt and granola for breakfast but I don't wear Birkenstocks or insist on seeing the resume of the food I eat (ever watch Portlandia?). Ok, but I do drive a Prius so stay away if you like guys with monster trucks and gun racks.
I've been running for about six years and still enjoy it but I've been cheating on my Asics recently with a new road bike. Don't tell the running shoes but I think I'm being seduced by the bike as I've been spending a lot of time on it recently.
When not in motion, I like plays, movies, books, and good food and wine. I've also travelled fairly extensively and think it expands the mind (business trips to Kansas notwithstanding), in addition to simply being fun.
I'm a licensed pilot (little four seat planes, not jets) and have a small plane but haven't had a lot of time to fly lately. That's something I'd like to change as there are so many beautiful and interesting destinations in the Pacific Northwest.
I have two children and they are the best part of my life. They are very different from each other and provide challenges and excitement. Helping them grow up thrills me and scares me at the same time.
I'd like to find someone who is bright and challenging but not negative or condescending. Humor is key. Warmth is key. A good education is appreciated but using Shakespearian quotations or Latin to order dinner is a little over the top.
